Rome, Lazio (Italy)
Adrieli's body was found with a head wound in a drainage channel.
The body of a transsexual woman was found along Via Prenestina in Rome. The discovery was made earlier today, Tuesday 22 June and took place in the Quarticciolo area, near viale Palmiro Togliatti.
At about 7.40 am, a report was made of a lifeless body inside a water drainage channel at street number 486, at the intersection with via Conversano, by a passerby who stopped a patrol of the Compagnia di Roma Montesacro passing through the area and requested an ambulance. The local carabinieri intervened at the scene, but unfortunately there was nothing for the woman to do except to note her death, which was confirmed by the 118 health workers who arrived by ambulance. Soldiers of the Investigative Unit of via in Selci also arrived to conduct scientific surveys and collect evidence.
The coroner and the magistrate on duty arrived on viale Palmiro Togliatti today for the first on-site checks. Those who investigated and carried out the first checks on the body found a wound on the forehead, which does not exclude any hypothesis, including murder. Subsequent post-mortem examinations will clarify the causes that led to the death. At the moment little information is known, the investigators are at work and it is not clear how the body got inside the canal, if anyone abandoned it and then left. Every hypothesis is currently being examined and the investigators are not revealing any further information but do not exclude any leads.
